Our take on the JL Audio CP210-W0v3

by John Pollard
JL Audio

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.

JL quality at a great price

JL Audio built the BassWedge CP210-W0v3 enclosure to make car-rattling bass for a reasonable price, without the need for a ton of power. The enclosure's designed to match the two 10" subs loaded into it, so you know you'll get every ounce of performance out of this enclosure.

An excellent combination

The CP210-W0v3 BassWedge contains two 10" W0v3 subwoofers that handle up to 600 watts RMS, and are loaded into a specially built slot-ported enclosure. The enclosure can be placed with the woofers firing downwards, or in typical front or rear firing applications, giving you immense bass regardless of how you place it.

Solid MDF enclosure

JL Audio uses state-of-the-art automated woodworking equipment to fabricate the high-quality MDF enclosure with rugged automotive carpeting, nickel-plated push terminals, and solid internal wiring. The enclosure is finished and inspected by hand at the manufacturing facility in Florida to ensure that you get the bass that you expect from JL Audio.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Overview: The JL Audio slot-ported BassWedge subwoofer enclosure is designed around two of JL Audio's 10" W0v3-4 (4Ω) subwoofers. Aggressive tuning delivers powerful bass without the need for a huge amplifier. The MDF enclosure is covered with gray carpet and has JL AUDIO logos embroidered across the top and front. The enclosure design offers a variety of installation options: forward, rear or down firing. The slot-port runs along the bottom of the enclosure and fires on the same plane as the woofer; the port mouth is flared to minimize air-flow noises.

Speaker Terminal: The enclosure uses one pair of nickel-plated, high current spring posts; the subwoofers are internally wired in parallel to the single terminal, presenting a 2Ω load to the amplifier. The posts are located on the left side of the box and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

W0v3 Woofer Features:

  • Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the 10W0v3-4 motor displays linear force over a long excursion range, and also maintains a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is a reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
  • Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame design of the 10W0v3-4 delivers cool air through slots directly above the top plate to the voice coil. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.
  • Rear Gasket: The woofer has a rear gasket to provide an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.
  • Long Excursion: The subwoofer has an Xmax of 11.4mm, giving you louder bass with less distortion.

Optional Grille: The optional SGRU-10 grilles (item number 136SGR1031, sold separately and individually) can be added to protect the woofer cones.

Dimensions: The CP210-W0v3 enclosure isn't symmetrical; it's approximately 29-5/8" wide, 13-7/8" tall at its tallest point (toward the front), 12" tall at its shorted point (toward the back), 17-1/2" deep at the base, and 14" deep at the top.

Great sub

Written By Brandon, Charlotte, NC on Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Went from a single 12" to this with same 500W amp. My ears hurt before the amp runs out. I have this installed in an Explorer so no issue with size. Accurate all around. Big improvement from the previous. Previous amp bottomed out 45Hz, this gets down to 25Hz and is a real, tangible gain in overall sound experience. Glad I paid the extra $$ for this one.
Pros:
Sound, sound and more sound. High quality build.
Cons:
A little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for in this case.

Loud and Powerful

Written By Trevor, Buffalo, NY on Monday, January 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have these installed using my JL Jx500w/1d mono amp and it's playing alongside an entirely JL audio speaker system (2x TR 690 TXI, 2x TR 525 CXI, and 2x TR 050 CT). After finding the settings I liked the subwoofer plays really nicely with the rest of the setup however I may recommend getting speakers with a higher RMS output than the ones I have listed. Right now I feel like overall I have just enough that it sounds good as a unit but I know my setup isn't always an option for every car. I immediately noticed the strain of the electricity on my car with the subwoofer addition so I would also recommend that buyers have in place a good "Big 3" or alternator. In terms of the sound quality, the subwoofer itself is great; loud and clear. Another caveat however would be that it is so forceful in my trunk that it rattles some parts of my car even the 6x9's above the woofer which can make an annoying noise so make sure everything is properly secured to avoid this. My problem is that it shakes my trunk's latch which I can't get to unless I dismantle parts of my bumper. It might also be beneficial to buy something to protect the face because it will shift things around in your trunk. Overall though the product itself is great and really will make a huge difference to anyone's sound system and I hope that this review will help others avoid missing the little details that I wasn't thinking about when I first installed the equipment. I would buy this product again.
Pros:
Loud, Deep, Cool looking, Minimal wiring hassle
Cons:
Will shake and move a lot of things but that is with every sub
